A fizzy addition to the party game canon, Party Animals brings ample amounts of chaos and chuckles, with an uneven mix of modes highlighting the physic fighting shortcomings. Still, it's never not fun to hurl a friend off a speeding train and see them shrink into the distance.
Both an incredibly faithful take of the Scott Pilgrim story, as well as a frustratingly inconsistent beat-em-up that is elevated by the art style and soundtrack. While it's great that fans news and old have a chance to rediscover its quirks, it's by no means a forgotten masterpiece.
The world won't stick with you, but beautiful visuals and excellent twin-stick looting make this a co-op blast…once you figure out what you're doing. You could get lost for weeks in its end-game content, but only the most obsessive will care about climbing Alienation's leaderboards.
